We develop our games using Unity It has everything you need for any type of project, big or small. There are lots of tutorials, a huge knowledge base in Unity Docs, an awesome Asset Store and great communities all over the Internet ready to help you.
To make development easier and save time we use various assets and plugins from the Asset Store. Even though we use mostly paid plugins and assets it paid itself multiple times by simply saving our precious time. There are great free plugins as well, but paid ones almost always offer better support if needed. We treat each asset as an extension of our team and we only pick the best ones that are supported well.
Today we’ll share with you, from our experience, the most useful and well-supported Unity plugins for mobile games development. Most of them support other platforms too.

Note: If you want to save a buck, you can always search for a free version of those assets or similar cheaper/free ones. You can also come across really great deals on sales or in bundles either on Unity Asset Store directly or for example on HumbleBundle.
If you want to save your time and virtually multiply your team members, we think the best way is to buy good assets that are tested and have great support. If you think alike then go ahead and don’t hesitate to offload some work to asset creators. You yourself can focus on creating that masterpiece of a game then. Good luck!
